The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, says the secessionist group is the most ”disciplined, well-behaved mass movement” in the world.
According to Kanu, there is no record of where people fought or engaged in open altercation in any of IPOB gatherings.
He urged people not to compare his group to the Boko Haram terrorists, saying that his members are non-violent and ”carry no arms”.
He made the remarks during an interview with newsmen in Abia state on Wednesday.
Kanu said it would be counter-productive for security agencies to apply the same measure used against Boko Haram insurgents on IPOB.
According to him, the plan by the federal government to use force rather than dialogue to deal with Biafra agitators will not work.
On the security outfit he recently launched, the IPOB leader said the group formed the outfit, known as ‘Biafra Security Service’ to checkmate the activities of suspected herdsmen in the South East.topics from
